Festive Wreath Week - Day 1

October 23, 2017



Hi everyone!  This week we are featuring projects from our cute Festive Wreath stamp and die set.  I love how this set is so whimsical and fun!  I hope that you enjoy the projects from our fabulous design team this week. 





 Yainea is here to kick this week off!  Take a peek!

Hello there!

It's Yainea here today with a Christmas card featuring the gorgeous Festive Wreath stamps and dies. I started my card by stamping some of the included images on watercolor paper and coloring them with Distress inks. I rubbed the ink pads on an acrylic block and colored the images with a brush adding some water to the inks, using them as regular watercolors.


When the ink was dry, I used the coordinating dies and my die cutting machine to die cut all the images. For the sentiment, I used a banner from and stamped one of the sentiments included in the Festive Wreath set, with a partial stamping techinque.

I then die cut my background paper with the dies and adhere everything on top. As a finishing touch I used my Wink of Stella pen and some Glossy accents on the berries but it's difficult to see the sparkling on the pictures.


I hope you feel inspired to go to your crafty space and create some Christmas cards with this beautiful set! ;)
Have a nice day!

Snowflakes Week - Day 4

October 19, 2017




Hi! Today I'm sharing Snowflakes! I added a little Festive Wreath light bulbs in for fun too!


I started the card by heat embossing the sentiment. I love the font combination of this sentiments. Next, I blended the background with Distress Inks and then stamped the snowflakes with Distress Oxide. 

I cut the card front and die cut a window using Wonky Stitches dies. Next I stamped and die cut the lights from Festive Wreath. The string is the "tails" from sentiments in Snowflakes dies.


I hope you have a great day!



Snowflakes Week

October 18, 2017



Hello there!
It's Yainea here with a Christmas card featuring the gorgeous Snowflakes stamps and dies. This set is perfect to create a lot of different cards and try different techniques.


I started by stamping the snowflakes with Versamark ink on vellum and then heat emboss them.
I used the Wonky Stitched dies to cut my base panel, I wanted a watercolor background for my card so I took some Distress inks, rubbed the ink pads on my acrylic block, added water and then I just used them like regular watercolors, adding different colors in different layers to achieve that effect.


Then, I used a Perfect Pearls spray on top to add some shine and adhered the sentiment and snowflakes. Finally, I adhered my panel to a white card base and the card was done. So fun! :)
I hope you like it!


Have an amazing day!

Snowflake Week - Day 3



Hello!  Amy K. here with a glittery, metallic winter card using the Snowflakes stamp set.  I started with a white panel and using Silver Embossing Powder, heat embossed the various snowflakes.  I used the dotted border die from Picket Fence Elle-ments as the edge.  I inlaid the Let it Snow from Snowflakes Elle-ments using silver glitter paper.  I left off any embellishments to keep this flat except for the foam adhesive on the curved panel so it is easy to mail!

Snowflakes Week - Day 1

October 16, 2017




This week we are featuring our lovely Snowflakes stamp and die set.  I hope that you enjoy all of the inspiration this week!


 

Hi there, it's Caryn Davies here today sharing a bright and festive holiday card featuring the gorgeous Snowflakes Clear Stamps.  I know bright pink isn't the traditional colour you would think to pick for a snow-themed card but it's the holidays - anything goes in my book and the brighter, the better!!

I started with a pink 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" base card and die cut a rectangle mat from white card and heat embossed a flurry of snowflakes onto it in white.  I then took some Magenta Infusions powder from Paper Artsy (available at Simon Says Stamp) and sprinkled it over the snowflakes.  You may think there's nothing there and be tempted to add a ton of powder - DON'T!  As soon as you add a spray of water over the powder the intense pigment just comes alive!  You can add more obviously and dab off where you want but these powders are just so much fun.  



Once it had dried I used the Let It Snow sentiment and heat embossed a strip of vellum in white.  I wrapped it round the panel and mounted it all onto the card base.  To finish I added a few dots of white Nuvo Drops here and there.

Welcome Home Seasons Week - Day 5

October 13, 2017



Hi Friends! Today I'm sharing the super versatile Welcome Home Seasons! Since Halloween is just around the corner I thought it would be fun to create a spooky, but cute Halloween card.


To start my card I stamped the two windows and the tree on card stock. Next, I created a mask for each item I stamped. The masks allowed me to blend ink over the entire card base. Then, I removed the masks and colored the images. Tip: Any background areas around the stamps that didn't get good ink coverage can be colored with a matching marker. It's an easy fix!


Next, I stamped the banner, die cut it out and added color. The card was finished with a frame, created with the Scalloped Pierced Rectangles, and a few sequins.

Thanks for stopping by!

Welcome Home Seasons Week - Day 3

October 11, 2017



Hello friends,

Katie Gehring here today to share a Halloween House created with the Welcome Home Seasons stamp set.  I adore the original Welcome Home stamp set.  It's so fun to play architect and home designers with stamps and paper.  Now that October is here, I thought I ought to decorate the house for the upcoming Halloween holiday!



I used a combination of images from the Welcome Home and the Welcome Home Seasons stamp sets to create the house.  I love how the yellow door and windows pop against the gray house.   The ghost and cobwebs are adorably spooky- not scary- which is how I like my Halloween!



Adding some detail to the roof line with a white gel pen really brought out the decorative accents on the roof. I colored the potted plants with violet Copic markers and hung a wreath on the front door as a finishing touch.

Supplies:

Now I am definitely in the spirit to decorate my own house for Halloween.  Don't forget to check back this week for even more inspiration featuring the Welcome Home Seasons stamp set!

Thanks for popping in!

Welome Home Seasons Week - Day 1

October 9, 2017




This week we are featuring our Welcome Home Seasons stamps and dies.  These sets coordinate with our Welcome Home Stamp and die set and are SO cute.  They can be used all year long.  To see how these sets work together be sure to check out the quick video below and then take a peek at what Yainea has created today!


 

Hello everyone!

It's Yainea here with a pink Christmas card featuring the Welcome Home Seasons stamps and dies. You can totally use this set on its own but it's a perfect add-on for the Welcome Home set, full of little elements to customize the House for different holidays like Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and Valentine's day :)

Christmas cards are never enough so I decided to decorate the Welcome Home house with Christmas elements and create a pink and kraft Christmas card. I love this non-traditional color combo!


I heat embossed all the elements from the original Welcome Home set using white embossing powder and then I stamped the add-on elements in different colors and colored them with my Prismacolor pencils. I wanted to showcase the Christmas elements and I thought this would be a great way to do it :)


I adhered all the different elements on a card base with a piece of patterned paper from the Sorbet collection that I previously die cut using the Scalloped Pierced Rectangle dies. Finally I tied some pink twine on top and the card is done :)

I hope you like it! Have a nice Monday!

Frosty Friends Week - Day 4

October 5, 2017



Hello Friends! Today I'm sharing the adorable stamp set Frosty Friends. This set reminds me of  beautiful Christmas antique treasures. I did a little searching on Pinterest for inspiration and then started on my card. 


First I stamped, die cut and colored the snow people. I used soft coloring and bold shadowing. I love how they turned out.


Next, I masked and inked a snow hill for the background and stamped the sentiment. Super simple and oh so sweet.

Thanks for stopping by!

Frosty Friends Week - Day 3

October 4, 2017



Hello!  Amy K. here with a card that will take you back to old vintage holiday cards.  I love old cards and I have some from my grandmas era that I kept when we were going through her things.  

Frosty Friends

Using Frosty Friends, I colored Mr.Snowman in using N1, N3, N5, N7 and a gold Wink of Stella pen.  I also colored the North Pole sign using R27 and BG0000 and B00.  The chunky "snow" you see is Stampendous Chunky White Deep Impression Embossing Enamel.  I love to break this out for wintery cards!  TIP:  Just remember to emboss it on the BACKSIDE of your paper!


Frosty  Friends3

For my background, I've simply swiped my Versamark ink pad over a piece of cardstock and added Princess Gold Embossing Powder from Ranger and embossed.  I diecut this panel with the scalloped rectangle die from Sweet Scallops Elle-ments.  You may notice that this panel is "smaller" than the die.  I simply die cut it several times making it the size I want!  I added a snow drift hill using the Picket Fence Elle-ments.  To finish, I stamped and embossed the sentiment and star with the same Princess Gold embossing powder and added Mr. Snowman with foam adhesive.

Frosty Friends Week - Day 1 & Viedo

October 2, 2017



Hi everyone!  This week we are featuring project examples using our new Frosty Friends Clear Stamps & Dies.  I hope you love the projects as much as I do!!




Hey there Avery Elle Fans, it's Caryn here with a card using the Frosty Friends stamp set (designed by me!).

My usual take on a snowy themed card would be to reach for the pale blues and aqua shades to give a classic icy feel to the image.  This time however, given the vintage style of the set I thought I'd try to recreate a more old-fashioned look, like an old sepia photo.

I've also made a little video showing how this card card came together using a partial die-cutting technique which is lots of fun!

Sledding Critters Week - Day 4

September 28, 2017



Hello everyone!!!  It's Heather Campbell here.  Today I'm playing with the new Sledding Critters stamp and die set today!  I love this little stamp because it's relatively easy and already pre-assembled but there are so fun elements that you can add to your sleigh and tree that make it a lot of fun!

To create my card, I colored and die cut the sleigh, string of Christmas lights and the reigns for the sleigh (hint: the curved line that's in this stamp is the designed to be the reigns of the sleigh!)  I added the circles to the tree to make them into ornaments!

Then, to create my background, I used the new Winter Borders die to cut the dots for the snow and the trees for the background.  I stamped my sentiment on the banner is from Wonky Stitches and popped up all of the images on some dimensional foam.  Then, to top if all off, I added some Citrus twine to the top of my card!

Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing part of your day with me!  I hope you have a great day!

Sledding Critters Week - Day 3

September 27, 2017



Hello friends,

Katie here with more Sledding Critters inspiration to share with you!  This collection of critters in a winter sleigh is so adorable!  If you loved the Birthday Bus stamp set, you will certainly want to add its wintery counterpart to your collection.


I stamped the sled image from the Sledding Critters stamp set and colored it with Copic markers.  Next, I die cut the image using the coordinating Sledding Critters Elle-ments die


For the background, I die cut the snow balls and tree line images using the Winter Borders Elle-ments die from a panel of light gray card stock.  Next I die cut the panel using the Pierced Rectangles Elle-ments die and adhered the die cut panel to a white note card.  I adhered the sled image, stamped the sentiment with black ink and added a few clear droplets as a finishing touch. 


Thank you so much for stopping by!  Be sure to check back every day this week for even more ideas using the Sledding Critters stamp set!
